Y'All Are Probably Going to Get Tired Of This

I just paid for Monthly Pass on over at Weight Watchers. I have to do something about this rather large pile of fat sitting at my computer morning, noon and night. It's getting in the way of my life and happiness.
I am going to my first (8,434,914th) meeting tonight. I will be there at 6:30 to get all the literature, weigh-in, and talk to my new leader. I have started and stopped meetings more than some of you have _____________ fill in the blank. (make it something you do quite often)
I had a little trouble getting all the eyes dotted and the tees crossed and during this (supposedly painless) process, I was thinking, "Oh, here I go again...I am trying to sabotage myself before I even get in the truck to go to the damned meeting!"
I have to lose the weight. It's getting hard to breath properly. My other foot is giving me fits, My knees, hips, yada, yada, yada. You have heard all the complaints from me.
I bought a nice little leather type journal the other day, just because I liked it. As I was signing up for the Monthly Pass, I started thinking I could use that little journal for keeping track of eveything weight-wise. It'll do well for notes from the meetings too. Instead of using their trackers, or journals, or whatevers.
With the Monthly Pass I have access to WeightWatchers Online as well, so I can look up everything I need to know. I can carry all the literature around with me so when I have a moment, I can look it over and memorize what I need to know.
I'll have more information after the meeting. For now I need to go and get something to eat before I go, because I know if I don't, afterward I will be starving. I know better than to let myself get to that. I will have sabotaged my first day before it was even a whole day! (Did that makes any sense at all???)

That journal sounds like a great idea.

Btw, your comment tonight means a lot to me. Thanks.

I think I'd be ok if you were my stalker!!

I am constantly struggling with this issue, so I commend you for not giving up. Consider me a cheerleader!

I am honestly going to be interested in how it goes. We are downright fat in this house and have to do something. I thought about WW and tried it online ('cause I didn't want to attend any meetings!) but couldn't figure it out. I think if I would cook right and eat right, my husband would eat right, too (the only good thing about him not being able to cook.) Okay, this comment if rambling, but please keep us posted so I decide if this is the route we need to go. How's that for pressure?

you can do this...and i self sabotage all the time. it's what we do, but once you start seeing the progress you will slowly stop..and you will not beat yourself up for any indulging at all.

i fully support the ww group and GOING TO THE MEETINGS to weigh in and listen is what really made me GET DOWN TO IT AND DO IT...ya know.

you can do this...*cheering*

Good luck with the weight watchers. I tried it and it worked for me, unfortunately I didn't stick to it. The journal is a good idea, I've found I make much better food choices when I have to write down what I'm eating.
